Looking for a way to automate the conversion of 100+ fb2 books (in subdirectories) into .rb format for my wifes reb1100. I would like to keep the chapter structure and if at all possible the cover images as well. Is there a command line way to force book designer to do this?

HELP!

Well, since you're wanting something from the command line you can use fb2html (http://pybookreader.narod.ru/fb2html.py.gz) to convert FB2 to HTML and then use rbmake (http://rbmake.sourceforge.net) to convert the HTML to RB. If you're on Windows, you'll need Python (http://python.org/download/), Python libxml/libxslt bindings (http://users.skynet.be/sbi/libxml-python/), and the rbmake binaries (http://sourceforge.net/project/platformdownload.php?group_id=10950&sel_platform=227).

Actually - I got another question.

In calibre - generated rb files won't load to my REB1100... what could be the problem ?

You should ask this question in the Calibre forum (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=166). Be prepared to answer specific questions about how you're doing things.

In fact, try to describe your process and results in your first post.

Try doing fb2 to epub, bust open the file and use rbmake. (http://rbmake.sourceforge.net/)
